2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: High Life pours a perfectly clear, light golden color. There are plenty of tiny bubbles and a very fluffy white head. Which I always expect from the champagne of beers.
S: I usually donít expect too much when having an adjunct lager, and most of the time donít really even want to smell it. This beer has a very metallic smell along with some corn. Itís not good, but itís not as bad as many.
T: Like the nose, there is a metallic character to this beer, at least initially. After that passes, there is a mix of actual grain/malt and corn. It again makes for a sensation that is not wonderful but not terrible either.
M: Probably my favorite part about High Life is the very effervescent feel of it on the tongue.
D: Itís drinkable in the sense that AB advertises Bud Light to be: itís basically water. The flavors are very watered down, but thatís what I expected.

Most of you know that one of my hobbies is beer. But what you probably didnít know is that another of my hobbies is industrial espionage. Well, it took a while, but Iíve finally secured the files which contain all of the Miller Brewing Companyís recipes. The recipe for High Life is as follows: for 1000hl batch, take 990 hl water, add 9 hl corn syrup and boil two hours. Transfer from ímashí tun to fermenter via used catheters from Shady Pines Nursing Home. Ferment with yeast scraped from the fingernails of cadavers. Once fermentation complete, spike with 10 hl gasoline. Top up with paint thinner to taste.

What is there to say? Itís the "Champagne of beers." That means itís good, right? Oh, wait, itís just a silly marketing ploy. Nevermind. This is a drain pour. Rated 11/22/2000

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Reminiscent of an Oly. Very faintly reminiscent. Itís better than water and any of the light so-called beers. Although in a food situation, I just might choose water. Might go well with chili, though. The Lady in the Moon is still on the cans. Trip down memory lane for those who can recall seeing the lady on the metal roadside signs. Damned if I donít think I can detect hops! Could be wrong.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottled, 500ml. Yellow, highly carbonated, white head. Another chance to experience the taste of an American Macro, and boy is this bad. A roughish sweetcorn type flavour covers the tongue with the cardboardy flavour of CO2 added to this is a tinny sweet perfume note. I try not to be harsh, but this is really bad.
